DENVER, Colo. (KREX) — Colorado Lawmakers have formed the brand new Gun Violence Prevention Caucus for the current legislative session.

“It’s a public health crisis that impacts our communities on a daily basis,” Colorado Senator Tom Sullivan (D-Sentinnal) told KREX.

Senator Sullivan along with Colorado Representative Meg Froelich (D-Arapahoe) are the co-founders of the Gun Violence Prevention Caucus. Senator Sullivan told me they founded the caucus to have a safe meeting space for legislators to discuss and collaborate on legislation around gun violence.

This caucus looks to make a big change from last year when Senator Sullivan told KREX, “We didn’t have a single gun violence prevention bill that moved forward, got introduced, or was debated at all.”

As the legislative session continues it will be worth watching to see how many bills come from the new Gun Violence Prevention Caucus.
